Even though this was a very long book (probably needed an abridged copy) it was an extremely interesting story of family, friends living their lives over a period of 50 years. The reader was excellent and easy to listen to , especially necessary for a long book. The stories of various characters were wonderful to listen to. I espectially liked the references to Vermont and New Hampshire sites which I recognized as living in New England. From the beginning to the end I couldn't wait to hear the next chapter in the characters lives.
The underlying story in this long, long book is interesting, but those chapters are few and far between. There are endless boring sections that detract from the main story and caused me to completely zone out -- not so good when you're listening while driving.
